Why Rush Limbaugh Is Good For America

Rush Limbaugh is important to America for several reasons. He loves America, he loves the American people and he believes in them. While most people have heard of him they do not really know or understand him unless they have listened to him personally. Rush likes to say you must listen to him everyday for a few weeks to understand his commentary and sense of humor. Many people form an opinion about him based solely on someone else's opinion. I have heard many people say they did not like or agree with Rush until they listened to him. After listening to him they realized they agree with most if not all of what he says. After all he loves America and believes in the America people.

He is entertaining, informative and right. Do you believe America is a force for good in the world? Do you believe Americans are generous? Do you believe when faced with adversity Americans buckle down and go to work? If you believe these things you agree with Rush Limbaugh. Above all Rush loves America. Millions of people listened to him everyday for three hours. No other talk radio host comes close to the size of his audience. What makes him so important and valuable is he speaks the truth. His research is intensive. He reads an incredible amount of material in preparation for the show. His opinions are based on facts and history. He is a conservative and says so often. He does not attempt to hide his position on the issues.

His audience is made up of people like him, they love America. They believe our founders set up the absolute best government on this planet. It's not perfect but it is the best. Our founding fathers created a government that allowed the American people to achieve greatness. This greatness was achieved because the government was limited in its power and scope. Government can not create wealth and prosperity but it can stifle it, destroy it and even take it away. Our founding fathers were brilliant when they created a government that is limited. It is because our government is limited that we have achieved so much. In a little over 200 years we became a super power. Our way of life is so desirable people risk their lives to get here. Americans give more to help other people around the world than any other country.

So if you believe America is a good country made up of good people, you agree with Rush Limbaugh. Listen to him everyday for a couple of weeks and see why he is the most listened to radio host. My guess is you will find yourself entertained, informed, uplifted, motivated and in agreement. Because Rush Limbaugh is so affective at exposing the truth and hidden agendas he is also despised. Those that depend on deception and lies to promote their agenda take every opportunity to attack him. They twist and distort what he says. They take his words …

Law Enforcement Surveillance Cameras for the Post-9-11 World – 5 Considerations

Whether events of September 11th, 2001 portend permanent or temporary changes in our nation, or around the world, local law enforcement organizations around the country know that a seismic event of some magnitude occurred which will affect the way we do things for years to come. Certainly the psyche of this and many other nations were impacted. Elections were influenced, relations between nations were altered, and normal international discourse was dramatically changed – maybe permanently.

While so much changed in the way we approached our daily lives, the most fundamental change may have taken place in the realm of security. “Business as usual” could no longer be tolerated at the local law enforcement level as a very real and visceral reality hit home – that some of the world’s most capable and redoubtable military powers could find themselves vulnerable to far less sophisticated, asymmetric threats which could kill thousands without firing a single round. Asymmetric warfare migrated from an intellectual exercise that planners in the Pentagon used to channel the directions of the Revolution in Military Affairs to one of practical consequence that seemed to throw all of the rules out the window.

When those two passenger jets slammed into the Twin Towers on 9/11 they had a galvanizing affect on how we conduct our day-to-day activities and challenged conventional wisdom about how we deal with potential threats. Probably nothing in our lives changed more visibly than the explosion in surveillance capabilities and the willingness, albeit with some degree of objection, to accept greater intrusiveness by governments as they sought to prevent even more cataclysmic events. Securing the general population became the mantra of governments and their leaders, and surveillance systems became a key means to achieve that security.

Yet the need to fill the apparent gap in government as well as private security architectures has not in all cases been met by a concomitant appropriate response from the commercial arena. Many companies rushed to fill the void without the commensurate experience needed to provide the right customer solutions. Company size, financial deep pockets, and an army of engineers by themselves mean little without a deep bench of experienced technocrats who have put years in the trenches of the surveillance industry and have lived the complex challenges this industry poses.

Towards that end, there are some necessary considerations when looking to acquire a surveillance system. These include, but are not limited to, the following:

1. Surveillance systems are not simply cameras on a pole: Potential users such as local law enforcement agencies need to understand the broader applications and uses of all of the components in an integrated, “total systems” approach. Certainly simple, and cost effective, wired CCTV solutions are a piece of the total solution. However, by themselves, they deprive a user of a complete solution – a fact that can go unnoticed until it is too late and a situation arises whereby more is needed.

2. Surveillance systems should be holistic in design and defined by the

McCain Economics Weak? Offers Most Practical Economic Proposal in a Decade

In an interview interviewed by CNN Monday April 15, 2008 McCain answered the questions about his age and whether he had the stamina for the job with an invitation for anyone who doubles his statina to come along with him on his campaign. That silenced everyone.

The following day McCain outshined all his opponents in his bid for the White House by outlining his economic strategy for the country. In an Associated Press article April 15, 2008 the details of Sen. McCain's plan look like the most practical short and long term proposals for the economy that anyone has heard of in a decade. McCain's proposal has a raw common sense appealing that is garnering the interest of everyday Americans and some top economists for whatever the economy is a strong suit.

The most appealing aspect of John McCain's proposition is that it speaks to the most pressing problem Americans are facing today; The price of gasoline. Traveling to and from the job is cutting into family budgets even without all the necessary driving that remains. Gasoline prices keep pumping up the cost of food and consumer goods and it is suppressing the economy faster than the present government stimulus package can bolster it. Will not spend has given way to can not spend which is the opposite of stimulus.

After seeing oil company execs feed Senate committees the "supply and demand" speech and the "we're investing in the search of alternative fuel sources" diatribe to explain huge profits McCain has countered with an in your face bit of good old American practical problem Solving that can not easily be ignored.

McCain has warned that both of his Democratic rivals are about to spring the single greatest tax hike in history on an unsuspecting America if either one is elected. The "big change" that Hillary or Obama propause for America will translate into the "big tax hike" according to McCain.

As a takeoff from the title of Barack Obama's book "The Audacity of Hope" published by Random House, McCain said "All these tax increases are the fine print under the slogan of 'hope:' They're going to raise your taxes by thousands Of dollars per year – and they have the audacity to hope you do not mind. "

Essentially what McCain is proposing should shame corporate America after offering only status quo answers to the public and at the same time trim big government long enough for the average Joe to make a recovery.

McCain's proposition has many elements but the most brilliant is to cut government taxes on gasoline during the approaching summer months by about 19 cents per gallon for gasoline and 24 cents per gallon for diesel. McCain's proposals were outlined in a speech made at the prestigious Carnegie Mellon University. He referred to the cut as a "gas-tax holiday." Speaking of hope, most Americans would hope that the tax cuts would become permanent, now that's audacity!

The most frequent objection to the idea of ​​cutting gasoline …

Legal Thriller Author Analyzes Paper Trails Scams

If 75% of women wear the wrong bra size, and 75% of men wear shirts with the wrong sleeve length, is it any wonder that so many people do not understand paper trails, do not understand their critical roles in con games? Fraud, shell games, scandal-revelation and creation, and rip-offs of every kind flower from this tell-tale debris.

And, alas, most importantly, it is essential to understand how all of this paper trail information is tied together by social security numbers. (For the intent to rob you blind, this information collecting method is, obviously, illegally illegal. For the lawn mower manufacturer, in his search for demographics trying to sell you a new riding mower, however, society seems to feel this is OK)

Spreading like wildfire, with the aid of an internet stage setting, what are paper trails anyhow? Let's be more specific.

Simply put, as they may affect you, they are every sort of record, kept anywhere, that link business transactions back to you. These can be any paper document such as a bill of sale, promissory note, receipt, application, resume filing, customs claim, insurance form, notarized statement, any legal form. These spell out into computer records.

It's a large society's propaganda into the computer / internet era of the 1990s that has thought about this current-day fleshing out of the "paper trail." It's now so efficient that the structural schematic of this thought-police invasion – this total assault on your privacy – should indeed frighten you. What next? You might ask. Will you be marked with a tracking device so the government always knows where you are?

In this day and age it's computers, computers, internet, internet. Far and wide. They are to blame. It's computer records that pull all these bits of paper information together, to the delight of con artists.

Examples: Credit card purchase? Computer. Bank deposit? Computer. House purchase? Computer. And, the list goes on and on. Endlessly.

Take a simple, one-time credit card purchase. This is stored in the bank's computer, as well as several way stations along the path back to your bank, in the network's computers. When you deposit cash into your checking account the information is stored in a computer. When you deposit cash into your savings account the information is stored in a computer. When you buy a house you get a triple-whammy, the transaction is stored in a computer, in paper form, and on microfilm at your county recorder's office. Every time you turn around and blink these days, it looks, something about you is recorded in a computer.

And, sad to say, the common link that pulls all of your business transactions together is your social security number. It is the commonly used identifier of the present day age. By using only your social security number the con man can put together a near-total list of your business transactions stretching back over the years.

So, stealing your ss number – it being the string-tying mechanism which pulls everything together …

The House of Lords – A Beginners Guide to UK Politics

The House of Lords has existed as a separate chamber of Parliament since the mid 14th century. In this article, we take a look at the Upper House’s role and structure.

The Role of the House of Lords

The House of Lords has existed as a separate chamber of Parliament since the mid 14th century, and has a number of roles to complement the work of the Commons. There are two important exceptions: members of the Lords do not represent constituencies, and are not involved in matters of taxation and finance.

1. Legislation

The House spends the majority of its time (about 60%) on legislation. It plays a key role in examining and revising Bills sent from the Commons. It may also initiate Bills (usually non-controversial), which spreads the burden of the legislative load more evenly between the two Houses and throughout the parliamentary year.

2. Scrutinising the Government

Another important function is to act as a check on the Government by scrutinising its activities, questioning and debating policy and other issues.

Oral questions (known as Starred Questions), may be asked for about 30 or 40 minutes on each day that the House sits, allowing ministers to be cross-questioned. Over 4,500 written question are also asked each year to query government policy and extract information.

Mini-debates (Unstarred Questions) take place every few days, and last no longer than 90 minutes. They provide an opportunity to raise issues of concern, with a government spokesman responding at the end of the debate.

General debates are usually scheduled every Wednesday. These will either be a single debate lasting no more than five hours, or two shorter debates running for a maximum of two and a half hours each. The topics for short debates are suggested by back-bench or crossbench peers, and chosen by ballot. The long debates are agreed between the whips of the political parties and the Convenor of the Crossbench peers – known as ‘the usual channels’.

3. Independent Expertise – the Select Committees

The membership of the House of Lords is characterised by a wide range of expertise, which is utilised in its major investigative select committees. For example, the European Union Committee has seven sub-committees involving over 70 members who scrutinise proposed European legislation. There are also committees on Science and Technology, Economic Affairs and the Constitution.

4. Judicial Work

The House also has an important judicial role. It acts as the Supreme Court of Appeal for the UK in both criminal and civil cases (except Scottish criminal cases).

Members include the 12 salaried Law Lords and the Lord Chancellor, and its sittings, on the Committee corridor, are open to the public.

The Structure of the House of Lords

Members of the House of Lords (known as ‘peers’) consist of Lords Spiritual (senior bishops) and Lords Temporal (lay peers). Law Lords (senior judges) also sit as Lords Temporal.

There are currently about 700 members of the House of Lords, including 26 Archbishops and Bishops and 92 hereditary peers. Lords …

A Career as a Senator – StudentScholarships.org

Many people take a great number of years defining themselves. Your future is the hardest thing to decide when the options are limitless. Most people can’t even fathom the outlet of their ambitions until at least junior year, and many change their major credits from graduation.

People’s problems, goals, views and morals have always interested me. I seemed to take easily to helping people and coming up with logical explanations and processes. I also realized how easily I could convince people to take a positive and progressive path. I decided through my own accomplishments that I would hold a public office and help the populace.

There is a hard road there. There are many ways to achieve my goal, but only one way that suits me. Learn all the tricks and trades of political science major. I want to study how it’s been done, the accomplishments and the mistakes. I learn how to do all the things right, and how they were done wrong, and I’ll perfect my skills. Then, I want to be an attorney, help people, get them what they need, and do the right thing for them. After I learn to help people in the right way, I’ll start a public life running for offices.

Senators have probably the most important job in the whole political system of our democracy. They have to work with forty nine of their peers to make the government keep turning.

Political, satirical cartoons illustrates the situation

Satirical cartoons are very popular now a days and are often featured in newspapers and magazines on a regular basis. Satirical cartoons usually focus on human mistakes and shortcomings in an often amusing but critical way, with the intention of making people aware of a certain political situation within a country.  Political cartoons are for the most part composed of two elements, caricature, which parodies the individual, and allusion, which creates the situation or context into which the individual is placed

There are many types of comedy, but political satire is probably my favorite type of humor. What makes it funny to me is, the “irony,” often used in this type of humor. In almost every newspaper around the world, a political cartoon is published that highlights a particular viewpoint or idea through the use of illustration. Often, the image is exaggerated and intended to be humorous as well as informative. They can also be satirical or even serious in tone, depending on the audience, the artist, and the idea illustrated. Humor lies in the difference between what is and what ought to be. Some political satire cartoons says more than a thousands words can.

Satire cartoons are that type of literary genre where human voices, abuses, mistakes and shortcomings are presented in a very funny and ironical way with a translucent intention of making society aware of a country’s present political condition. Satire cartoons are often found in the editorial sections of many newspapers raising some radical and minority issues with a hope of bringing an improved social change. Though satire cartoons are often presented in a witty and funny manner, still the purpose of satire is not only to create humor but to criticize an event, an individual or a group in a witty approach.

Satire cartoonists often target on famous public personalities or people who and whose actions affect the society in some ways or other.

Political satire cartoons have been around as long as politics and government. Part entertainment, part statement of beliefs, it always magnifies the wrongs (or perceived wrongs) of government and is found in all manner of media across centuries. Political satire is using sarcasm and/or humor to point out the foibles, incompetence, or corruption …

Trump’s Generals – The Militarized Government

Trump’s appointment of a coterie of former and current military generals to key high-level government posts is unnerving and quite ironic from a man who aggressively avoided being drafted in the Vietnam War. Now he needs their services. It’s not so much about defending America’s core interests overseas which is a necessity for this empire, rather it’s the almost exclusive appointment of generals that give the frightening perception that America could be not only more aggressive overseas but domestically as well. It’s the latter that is most worrisome as a threat to our freedoms.

It’s an open secret that significant economic structural flaws worldwide exists. We barely escaped an economic meltdown in 2008, however because no genuine changes to fix the system were undertaken combined with an exploding global debt crisis, we’re heading for an inevitable train wreck. According to Trump, he has good instincts and his instincts probably tell him that this train wreck will happen on his watch which is why he needs as much “crowd control” protection as possible.

Despite their personality differences, generals are trained in the same culture and speak the same language which means there’s less ambiguity on objectives just differences on tactics. The militarization of the government is almost complete as the newly appointed generals now command an experienced and militarized law enforcement. Trump can ill afford a usually diverse civilian cabinet who may demure in times of crisis.

The key question is how his team will react to stem a severe economic crisis and/or terrorist attacks. With respect to the former, each recession over the past 20 years has been progressively worse than the previous one, with the 2008 one “arrested” at the precipice of a bottomless black hole. More importantly is how he will manage messy aftermath – not economically but on the streets. Like a meteorological disaster, the initial destruction is terrible but the looting is often just as deadly.

With respect to the latter, with a militarized government will he unhesitatingly declare martial law and either suspend or even crush civil liberties? Would this provoke nationwide riots that would make the 1968 anti-war and civil rights riots look like a family picnic? And would they dramatically increased government surveillance powers? With such advanced technology even the business sector knows you better than you know yourself.

Already cities are declaring themselves “sanctuaries” for the undocumented population which could be expanded to include law-abiding people protesting government policies. To what extent will the government “squeeze” the states to comply to arrest these individuals if the state refuses?

There’s insidious legal language buried in the Homeland Security law that gives government far-reaching powers during a crisis. The issue is what and who defines a crisis? Could this be used as a pretext for a soft coup for indefinite government lockdown on freedoms? For this reason this is why you have to question why so many generals, who aren’t from the Colin Powell mold, have been appointed to high-level cabinet posts.

This pre-positioning …
